A girl from Cortlandt Manor is using her difficult health journey to inspire others as part of a fundraiser.  
Seven-year-old Madison Turner was diagnosed last September with rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare children's cancer that impacts her muscles.
She underwent a successful surgery and chemotherapy - all while maintaining a positive attitude.
Madison is now an ambassador for Stop & Shop's annual Help Cure Childhood Cancer Campaign.
Stop & Shop customers throughout the tri-state can donate at checkout by rounding up their total to the nearest dollar or by donating an additional $1 to $5 until April 2.
The proceeds from donations go to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center where Madison receives her treatment.
